Compensation: Are You Eligible?
There is a wide range of various scenarios in which you may be eligible for a compensation payout. Think that something that happened to you wasn’t your fault? Then there is a big chance that you will be able to claim compensation for it. Not sure what you can claim for? Here are some of the most common cases.
Delayed Or Cancelled Flights
Did an airline leave you stranded in an airport for quite some time last time you went on holiday? Well, you may be entitled to some money for the flight’s delay or cancellation. If you are traveling from an EU airport or on an airline that is based in the EU, you are covered by the Denied Boarding Regulation. This states that the airline should help you if the flight’s delay goes on for so long. If there is just a short delay between two and three hours, then you are entitled to free refreshments. If there is a very long delay caused by something that was the fault of the airline, then you will be able to claim some compensation.
Have you suffered from an accident that wasn’t your fault? If so, you need to contact a team of accident attorneys. They will help you to take your case to court and try and come to a settlement in your favor. You need to be able to prove that the accident wasn’t caused by you. One of the best ways of doing this is through evidence from witnesses. So, if possible, try and contact people who may have witnessed the accident so that they can help you win your claim.
If you have been a victim of medical malpractice, there is a large chance that you are entitled to a significant sum of compensation. Medical malpractice can come in many different forms. The most common are when doctors prescribe treatments that do not do a patient any good, and the patient continues to suffer for a sustained period. More serious cases of medical malpractice involve surgery that has gone wrong or the wrong medication being given. This could lead to the patient injuring themselves further.
These days, it is illegal for an employer to dismiss their employees for reasons based on prejudices. If you believe that you have lost your job because of your sex, race or religion. The dismissal should only be based on the employee’s performance. If you have reason to think that you were dismissed unfairly, you should speak to an attorney who specializes in employment. They can help you get an out of court settlement. However, if such a settlement isn’t agreed to, you may have to take the case to an employment tribunal where your attorney can help you win your case.
There are various cases which you can now claim compensation. Generally speaking, if you have lost considerable amounts of money or have suffered an injury for reasons that weren’t your fault, you will have a case for compensation.
